Ebola is here

With the death of the Dr. Khan, the World's authority on Ebola, considerable knowledge on this virus has been lost. Dr. Khan has been credited with treating over 100 patients during this recent outbreak in West Africa.  

Brief History:Ebola was first recognized in 1976 via outbreaks in the Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC) and the Sudan. In fact, the virus was given the name "Ebola" from the infected animal remains that were scattered along DRC's Ebola river. Ebola is thought to be transmitted to humans via eating contaminated "bush-meat". According to the World Health Organization, the risk of travelers contracting Ebola is considered low because it requires direct contact with bodily fluids or secretions such as urine, blood, sweat or saliva, experts say. Ebola can't be spread like flu through casual contact or breathing in the same air. In March 2014, West Africa has witnessed a resurgence in the disease. Sierra Leon, Guinea, and Liberia have the highest confirmed cases of Ebola with a mortality rate of approximately 60%.
